Gene Kelly, Ol’ Blue Eyes and Jules Munshin are sailors on a 24-hour pass in New York when each of them finds romance with an aspiring dancer, a lady cabbie and a paleontology student, respectively. Music, dance and sexually-charged hilarity ensue as the seaman pursue their momentary love interests in this popular MGM musical adapted from the Broadway show by the same name by Betty Comden, Adolph Green, and Leonard Bernstein.
